Year 4 Parents- Ukuleles

Dear Year 4 parents,

I’m excited that this term we will be starting ukulele with the Year 4s. In order for them to make progress, we will be lending them ukuleles from the school to practice with. 

I have spoken to them about being responsible with them, and they will come with a case. Instruments do require maintenance and ukuleles are pretty hardy, so if a string breaks, for example, or one of the tuners, please let me know and they are easily repairable. If something more serious happens (for example, one got sat on or was kicked and was damaged irreparably) we would be asking for a £18 contribution towards the cost of a replacement one. 

I will be sending round a link next week with a link to a tuner app and website so your child has something to tune it with in case it starts to sound horrible!

Many thanks,

Mr Fairhead

The Pause

At St James, we feel it is important to introduce our pupils to stillness and allow them to discover how to be inwardly free and deeply at ease within themselves. A short period of 5-10 minutes at the beginning and middle of every day is allocated to quietude in which pupils may meditate, contemplate or simply be still – according to their own spiritual inclinations.
